    Question regarding purchasing suppressor in FL

    A Jacksonville TV station reported on their evening news this week that a prospective purchaser of a suppressor in Florida is required to obtain permission from the local chief law enforcement officer. In this case, the Jacksonville sheriff has to personally sign-off on a purchase, and he won't do that.

    Is this accurate? Thanks.

    No.

    The recent changes to the process no longer requires a signature from the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO). The process now requires that the CLEO be notified. The notification process simply requires that you mail the applicable copy of the ATF Form 4 to the CLEO.

    The CLEO copy of the Form 4 states:

    This form provides notification of the transferee’s intent to acquire and possess a National Firearms Act (NFA) firearm. No action on your part is required. However, shouldyou have information that may disqualify this person from acquiring or possessing a firearm, please contact the NFA Division at (304) 616-4500 or [email protected]. A “Yes”answer to items 14.a. through 14.h. or 16.b. or 16.c. could disqualify a person from acquiring or possessing a firearm. Also, ATF will not approve an application if thetransfer or possession of the firearm is in violation of State or local law.

    Link to the Form 4 for your reading pleasure:

    There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; it's how we arrange them that is important.

    One benefit of the recent changes is they reversed the situation where Chief LEOs could and did refuse to sign, effectively creating a patchwork of places that citizens could or could not obtain NFA items! Now one can relish in giving the middle finger to Chief LEOs who refuse to honor their oath to uphold the Constitution.

    It appears that this was the case in Jacksonville/Duval County, but no longer.

    I've never bought a Title II firearm, or suppressor, before, but out of curiosity I looked at the form. So, what do people normally put into the "Necessity Statement?" My inclination would be to put, "Because I want to."

    "All lawful purposes"

    IIRC and it has not changed, North Carolina residents have to put "Research and Development" due to a quirk in the state statutes.

    There was a time that we put funny things in the box, but Martinsburg lost its sense of humor. I saw a form for a machine gun that said "Because Chicks Dig Um"

    When wait times got to be more than a year, people stopped doing anything that might cause a further delay.

    Well don't they? Some would say "chicks" from Shannon Watts crowd don't, but then are they "chicks?"
